Williamson County Schools Update

Jason Golden is accustomed to wearing many hats: general counsel for Williamson County Schools, chief operating officer for the district and, most recently, deputy superintendent. 

Now, amid negotiations with the school board to become the district's permanent superintendent, Golden is ready to take on the new role.

Golden, 50, didn't have his sights set on superintendent when he first started at the district in 2006, and jokes that he took on more responsibilities as the district dealt with budget cuts over the years.

In reality, Golden said the additional duties came because he showed he was equipped to handle them.

"I'm convinced that over time, if you have that goal to put students first and serve them, the opportunities (rise) to continue to serve them in a broader arena," he said. "That's what happens for a lot of educators — teachers often end up in principal roles because they've been doing a good job of serving people."
